1776 Weekly Continental Return, Boston. Document signed by Peter Wadsworth, Major of the Brigade, 1 page, 8 x 12½ in., Boston, Sept. 6, 1776. "A weekly Return of two Regiments of Militia in the continental Service." The two regiments are Dike's Regt. and Francis' Regt. Categories listed include commissioned officers, staff officers, non-commissioned officers, and "Effective Rank & File." Notably since the last return, no men have enlisted, none are dead, none departed or discharged, but 96 cannot be found. Paper was obviously scarce since the return is written on the verso of a letter.
Estimated Value $500 - 1,000.

Realized $630
